Millie Small – The Artists

Millicent Dolly May Small CD (1946 – 2020) was a Jamaican singer and songwriter, best known for her 1964 recording of “My Boy Lollipop”, which reached number two in both the UK Singles Chart and the US Billboard Hot 100. On her UK records, she was usually credited mononymously as Millie.

My Boy Lollipop – The Song

‘My Boy Lollipop’ (originally “My Girl Lollypop”) is a song written in the mid-1950s by Robert Spencer of the doo-wop group The Cadillacs, and usually credited to Spencer, Morris Levy, and Johnny Roberts. It was first recorded in New York in 1956 by Barbie Gaye. A later version, recorded in 1964 by Jamaican teenager Millie Small, with very similar rhythm, became one of the top selling ska songs of all time. It has been covered by other artists including Bad Manners, who had a hit with it in 1982 re-titled as “My Girl Lollipop (My Boy Lollipop)”.

The Ice Lolly – The Shape

This record has been modelled into an ice lolly as the rectangular shape of the ice lolly is more interesting than a simple circular lollipop.  An ice or lolly pop is a water or milk-based frozen snack on a stick whereas a lollipop is a type of sugar candy usually consisting of hard candy mounted on a stick and intended for sucking or licking.
